Griffith Animal Control - Griffith Pet Shelter

The Town has an annual registration and tag ordinance. All residents are expected to maintain the health and safety of their pets. Animals should not be allowed to 'roam free', but must be controlled via a fenced yard, leash, etc. Certain animals, such as dogs and cats, must receive annual vaccinations and must display the veterinarian-provided vaccination tag on their collar. To provide verification of this annual vaccination, pet owners should keep receipts and vaccination certificate from their veterinarian. There are various state and local ordinances related to 'animals'. For example, Griffith residents cannot have 'wild' or 'farm' animals; they cannot operate an animal-related business except in properly zoned areas; and there are ordinances related to noise and annoyances. Sandy is authorized to issue citations ("tickets") for animal-related violations. Sandy also has some dogs and cats available for adoption.
